The Copenhagen Democracy Summit

The Copenhagen Democracy Summit is an annual event dedicated to strengthening the resolve of the world’s democracies by providing a high-level strategic forum exclusively focused on the cause of democracy. The Summit fosters vigorous debate based on the belief that good ideas are born when strongly held views are allowed to clash – especially among participants who share a broad commitment to democracy and open debate. 

The Foundation recognizes the positive symbiosis between democracy, tech and business. We believe that we all benefit from a greater level of personal interaction and exchange ideas. Allowing the participants to build strong personal relationships is a vital element of the Summit and of realizing the long-term goal of a stronger alliance of the world’s democracies.
